Although James Marsden approaches life instinctively and intuitively (as described on the previous page), he also has a very analytical, rational, unemotional side, as discussed below. His conflicting urges may vacillate between living passionately and dangerously, and being conservative and playing it safe.
At heart James Marsden is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. James Marsden has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Marsden can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in a job well done. What he may lack in self-confidence James Marsden often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Marsden can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. James Marsden likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Marsden. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Marsden can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Marsden tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-assessment and often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. James has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. He is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Marsden can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though James Marsden seems rather cool and self-contained, he is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. He is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. He is quietly devoted to the ones he cares for.
He is cautious, realistic and practical in his approach to life and disinclined to gamble. James Marsden analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Marsden allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Marsden. James Marsden has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. James Marsden may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
